Aluminum Oxide Controversy: Facts or Fallacy

At a recent physician’s meeting in Southern California, concerns were expressed regarding the use of aluminum oxide as part of the treatment of microdermabrasion and specifically, statements were made relating this material to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease and/or pulmonary fibrosis.

aluminum oxide ControversyReports cited as correlating exposure to aluminum oxide with the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease or pulmonary fibrosis have frequently been misquoted or taken completely out of content. To be precise, these reports deal specifically with aluminum mine workers. In a report entitled “Pulmonary Fibrosis in Aluminum Oxide Workers,” the writers specifically indicate that the nine subjects in question had an average duration of working place exposure to aluminum oxide of 25 years and all had smoked or continued to smoke cigarettes. What the study also indicated was that these workers had excessive and prolonged exposure to dust in work environments without the use of OSHA recommended respirators. Other published studies indicate similar results and all study subjects were mine workers.

To date, many neuroscientists have indicated that the two prominent marks of Alzheimer’s, called beta amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, may well be the cause of Alzheimer’s. There is no mention of any connection between aluminum or any derivative thereof and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Additionally, accordingly to the Journal of American Dentistry Association (JADA), a study indicated that aluminum oxide crystals have been in use since the 1940’s as the medium for air-abrasion systems. These systems use aluminum oxide crystals to abrade teeth for removing caries (decay) and in preparing teeth for bonding. This means that the crystals were being put directly into the mouths of humans.

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are documents that contain information about the potential health effects of exposure to a particular chemical. Beyond the minimum information required by OSHA to ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are evaluated, and that the information concerning their hazards is transmitted to employers and employees, some suppliers put more details in their MSDS than is required. This unfortunately provides an opportunity for unscrupulous companies to exaggerate and promulgate scare tactics about particular substances to serve their commercial needs.
